Gifts From Across The Pond

So for my first official post back I thought I would show you what my sister brought back from the states for me. She works over there on the Disney Cruises which is prime opportunity for me to give her my shopping lists of those well sought after products we can't get over here. If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen a sneak peek already. Now onto the good stuff...

So of course she had to get me some sweets and chocolate, I asked her to find the Birthday Cake M&M's as they just sounded amazing (which they are!). She also got me Hershey's chocolate in Cookies'n'Creme and Candy Cane which I can't wait to try. Beauty wise she picked me up a NYX Butter Gloss to add to my growing collection and a Sephora Lipstick which I'm excited for as it's my first Sephora product! Also the Revlon Colorstay Whipped Foundation and Maybellines Color Tattoo Pure Pigment in Breaking Bronze, both of which we can't get in the UK. Finally for makeup she got me some Maybelline Baby Lips. From Bath & Body Works I got 4 Anti-Bac Pocket Hand Gels and a cute holder which is a mouse in a tutu, who couldn't love that? Also I got their Ultra Shea Body Creme in Twisted Peppermint and a Car Air Freshener Visor Clip with 2 refills in Twisted Peppermint and Pumpkin Pecan Waffles. And finally she couldn't work on the Disney Cruises and not bring me anything Disney back! So she got me a pin of my favourite ever Disney chatacter, Marie from The Aristocats and a Olaf pen!

Please comment and let me know what you would like to see a review or more detailed post on.

New Year, New Laptop, Fresh Start

Hey! Well this feels strange. Long time no see, The last time I blogged was May 2014! As some of you may know I had major laptop issues which I thought I had sold with treating myself to an iPad. Little did I know that blogging on an iPad wasn't the easiest thing along with a demanding full time job, I just thought it was best to leave it until I could properly sort it all out rather than post just alright posts with hardly any pictures.
So here I am! I decided to treat myself to a new laptop on Boxing Day. It was a total spur of the moment buy and didn't expect to buy it but it was one of those (dare I say it) YOLO moments! I just cringed writing that ha! So how have I been?
I had an ok Christmas. I was ill and had to work up to Christmas Eve. We actually had our Christmas Day on Christmas Eve as my mum was working on Christmas Day. Because I was ill I didn't enjoy Christmas dinner at all and spent most of actual Christmas Day sleeping. Luckily because my sister was away in America working on the Disney Cruise we had a 2nd Christmas when she returned, this time I was fit and ready to devour my Christmas dinner.
New Years was also a bit of a dud, I worked both NYE & NYD. I tried to stay up til midnight but flaked at bout 11.30! But I did have to be up at 3.30am to go to work so I do believe that's justified!
Besides that I've just been working really, Christmas was manic for us and I'm kinda glad its over now! I feel I can relax and obviously have more time to blog!
I just want to say thank you to anyone that has stayed with me, I totally understand if anyone did decide to give up on me I mean I probably would of. But look forward to plenty of new things on my blog, including my next post which will be what my sister brought back from America for me!
Thanks Again!
